Angela Merkel, the woman who has held control of the European Union and successfully negotiated with Russian President Vladimir Putin, is one of the most crucial and formidable fixtures in contemporary politics. Political commentator and journalist Matthew Qvortrup weaves the personal story of the German chancellor with the vivid history of post- World War II in Angela Merkel, the riveting account of the political titan’s ascent from obscurity to become one of the most influential leaders in the world, responsible for making Germany more liberal and prosperous than it has ever been.

Updated from the hardcover, this definitive biography follows Angela Merkel from her bleak childhood in East Germany through her meteoric rise to power, and includes up-to-date information on recent pressing concerns, such as the current refugee crisis.
